Roderick Johnson NFL Draft Profile
Roderick Johnson-OL-Florida State
Size: 6’7 298lbs
- Great length
- Powerful punch
- Plus power-run block
Analysis: Roderick Johnson is exceptionally long with a well-proportioned frame. Definitely looks the part of an NFL lineman. Has telephone poles for arms. Unfurls his length and consistently jabs into defenders with maximum arm extension. Punch can be very disruptive for edge rushers who have to alter their rush plans. Plus power as a run blocker. Can finish with authority once he latches into the defender’s frame and gets momentum churned up. Gathers weight and focuses power into opponent at point of attack. Massive wingspan can buy him time to recover against sudden changes of direction. Plays with good awareness. Sees blitzers lurking and is ready to respond. Good transition speed to slide from his stance.
- Lack of body control and balance
- Spends a lot of time on the ground
- Lateral movement
Analysis: Roderick Johnson plays with an alarming lack of body control and balance. Weight is rarely centered. Big feet get tripped up too often. Pass slides lack proper base width and control. Allows his feet to cross over causing regrettable change of direction attempts against inside counters. Hands and feet are in disharmony and need to get synced. Straight-legged into contact. Power seems to be an issue with redirect blocks. Has athletic traits but doesn’t always manifest itself in play. Sluggish with lateral movement.
NFL Comparison: Kyle Long
